Abstract
Very little is known about Ronald Gundry. He earned an M.A. probably from Balliol College, Oxford University, and lived in Staines, Middlesex as a young man and later in Richmond, Surrey. In the summer of 1921 he traveled to Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia to investigate student conditions in universities, on behalf of the Universities' Committee of the Imperial War Relief Fund and the International Committee of Young Men's Christian Associations. In 1920, he served as the Honorable Secretary of the Staines Branch of the League of Nations Union; in 1921, as the Secretary of Delegations for the Oxford International Assembly; in 1925-1926 (and other years?), as the Treasurer of the Youth Section of the No More War Movement; and in 1927, as Competition Secretary for the Festival of Youth sponsored by the League of Nations Union.
